Confidence Q

Hi Brooke, I can relate to another Scholar’s angst about not coming up with areas of confidence. Does this come down to perspective and personal interpretation of the word confidence? Others may see us as confident but internally we may be shaking in our boots. I realize the shift from owning the word as an emotion rather than a description of ability is attached to thoughts. For me not feeling confident about something is also attached to being practiced. My current confidence list is all practiced abilities. I find it interesting that I am not writing things that others might see me confident in. If I believe I have to be perfect at something before I can say I am confident then confidence will not be available to me as a strong emotion. Is that right?
